So far in the Book of Mormon, the non-Lamanite peoples have never been together in one group. At first, the Nephites and the Mulekites were separate, and just as the Nephites joined up with the people of Zarehemla in the days of Mosiah's grandfather, Zeniff took his band to the land of Lehi-Nephi. The history of the last two generations has had Nephites living in at least two if not three different communities. Now, the people finally are gathered together. This begins the era when Zarahemla becomes the capital for all the Nephites and the Mulekites, when they were all one people.
